A virtual interview series reflecting on the past, present and future of Oregon’s Dundee Hills

Episode 2: A Conversation with Rollin Soles

Tue April 13, 5 pm PST / 8 pm EST

A Champagne-loving winemaker from Texas is one of the most recognized winemakers in Oregon. Rollin Soles, as the winemaker and founder at Argyle Winery, came to know Cal Knudsen and Knudsen Vineyards in 1986. Rollin’s sparkling wines at Argyle were garnering praise from around the world, and Cal quickly became a mentor and a friend. Their kinship led to Knudsen Vineyards becoming Argyle’s founding vineyard, a relationship that continues to this day. Today, Rollin is the winemaker at ROCO Winery which produces beautiful Pinot noir and Chardonnay wines, including a vineyard designate from Knudsen Vineyards fruit.

Episode 3: A Conversation with Alison Sokol Blosser and Alex Sokol Blosser

This year the Sokol Blosser family is also celebrating their 50th Anniversary as grape growers and winemakers in the Willamette Valley. This conversation with Alison Sokol Blosser and Alex Sokol Blosser, siblings and co-Presidents, will chronicle the parallels and intersecting trajectories of the two Dundee Hills wineries and the second generations leading them. This conversation will include the reveal of an exciting forthcoming collaboration between the two families.

Ep 4: A Conversation with Véronique Boss-Drouhin

JUNE 8 – TUE at Noon pm PST / 3 pm EST

In 1987, when Burgundy’s famed Maison Joseph Drouhin purchased 100 acres in the Dundee Hills to grow Pinot noir, Cal Knudsen knew that the Willamette Valley was destined for greatness. Cal had enormous respect for Robert Drouhin and admired the exceptional quality and elegance of Drouhin wines from Burgundy, Chablis and now Oregon. Today, Robert’s daughter, the talented winemaker Véronique Boss-Drouhin joins her family in stewardship of Domaine Drouhin Oregon. Theirs is a legacy that has fostered a camaraderie between Burgundy and Oregon that has elevated Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine region. Véronique joins us live from Burgundy, France to share stories about her family’s early and ongoing commitment to Oregon.
